No Yzerman jersey would have it on the side that Z has it right now.

If I'm correct the C/A has always been above the Wing until recently when they switched to the reebok jerseys... I know back in the day it was above the wheel but I believe that was way before CCM jerseys

The C was moved to its current position above the wheel after the NHL switched to the Reebok Edge jerseys post-2007. The winged wheel moved up the chest and the captaincy patches were moved so the wing didn't interfere with them.

It's also why the Red Wings are the only team with their patches on that side.

I've got 2 authentic Yzerman CCM jerseys, home & away, from back when he was still playing. I can tell you with all certainty that the C is on the left above the wing, not on the right above the wheel. There might be a chance the jersey was an old CCM that was customized after the switch was done due to the current Reebok jersey and the C was placed their because that's what's current. Regardless, I would be skeptical.

Even if it were authentic, it'd be dumb to pay money for something that historically makes no sense. Yzerman wore the C above the wing. Pass on it.

Yzerman has always worn it on the wing:

Wasn't until recently, (5yrs I think) they changed:

I was pissed when they switched it. Yzerman was my favorite player growing up. But man, looking at these pics made me realize how much I like it it how it is now

I've been an Yzerman nut since I can remember. I have over 100 Yzerman cards, 2 jerseys, and so many paper and mag clippings I wouldn't want to count them. In all that, I have never seen a image of Yzerman with the C on his right shoulder.
